    Hi cnoland and welcome, use what you have for now as i bet it wont be long before you want to upgrade anyway, it will give you time to see if you are really hooked before you spend too much money, then the skies the limit, but research before you buy and ask questions, lots of very good advice on this forum from some very good astronomers. regards ron.s.g

  20. Hi Adamski, the only time i have seen the milky way clearly was last time i was in cyprus at a placce called colossi and the view was breath taking, it showed what i have been missing for all these years, can't wait to leave here and live in cyprus but another few years to go yet, unless i win the lottery tonight £137 million might just help. regards Ron.s.g
  21. Hi all, would be better turning lights off at night and saving money than worrying about changing times. regards Ron.s.g
